I'll start by saying that, besides her paranormal Lords of the Underworld series, I've never read any of her other works. If you've read any posts on my blog the past few weeks, you'll know I've mentioned LotU a few times - even in comments on other blogs. Why? I abso-freaking-lutely love the Lords series! I picked up the first one on a whim and haven't looked back since. But I was always hesitant to read any other type of romance books other than paranormal. I don't really have a problem with other people reading them, I just always associated them with middle-aged housewives who read while tanning and drinking mixed cocktails. Nothing wrong with that - my mom and aunt fit under that category - I just didn't think it was for me. I was wrong! Like the Lords, I picked this one up on a whim. The cover got my attention, along with seeing that it was written by Gena Showalter. I loved her writing style in LotU, so I assumed her writing would be similar with her other books. A few hours later, I started reading and didn't stop until I was done. I was absolutely hooked! The premise of the book from the blurb was promising enough. A girl, Jillian, who was paid to go flirt with men and catch them trying to cheat on their wives. She's good at her job and, given her history, it's a nice perk to catch them in the act so she can tell their wives what kind of men they really are. Enter Marcus, Jillian's male counterpart. From the very beginning, it's bad blood between them - spoiler ahead! - and even worse when Jillian finds out Marcus is her new boss. Throughout most of the book, their relationship can best be described as love/hate, kiss me/I want to kill you - type relationship. But, then again, I think that's what makes a great story. As mentioned earlier, I love Showalter's writing style. It's nice and smooth, just the way I like it. The characters have their own unique voice and personality, which is a big plus for books. I also loved the character interactions, mainly Jillian and Marcus - the witty dialogue made me laugh out loud many times ... much to my husband's dismay, who was playing video games at the time. The ending sealed up the package nicely.

This was a light, fun read. It had me laughing out loud at times. The cheesy pickup lines at the beginning of each chapter were a nice reminder of how lucky I am to be done with the dating scene ;)

Very cute, a little unrealistic, but what do you expect from a romance. All in all pretty good.

I love the premise of this book. The heroine, Jillian Greene, works at Catch a Mate, a company in Oklahoma City that helps people to catch their philandering significant others. Jillian caught her father in flagrante dilecto with the next door neighbor as a child, and since then hasn't trusted men. And it's no wonder, considering she's constantly acting as "bait" to catch cheating men. But then in walks Marcus Brody, a delectable piece of female bait. Ends up he's also bought the company, which Jillian had wanted to do. Sparks fly from the first time they're in the same room as each other, and things only get hotter as the story progresses. Like I said, I loved the premise of this book. I also really enjoyed Showalter's voice. She's fun and snappy and witty, and tension between Jillian and Marcus was palpable. But...there was one thing that irked me so badly that it kept me from really, truly enjoying this book. What was that, you ask? The way Jillian's reconciliation with her father was handled. Without spoiling too much, I thought Jillian's reconciliation and forgiveness happened way too fast. I know that she needed to forgive her father in order for her to truly feel free to be with Marcus, but it was like a split second, a small blip, really, and I don't think was treated with the gravity it should have been treated with. This is a man who broke his daughter's heart, who committed adultery and caused his daughter to have trust and emotional intimacy issues. You don't just get over those things. You don't just decide, "I need to forgive my father for cheating on my mom and leaving us all" and forgive him. It doesn't happen that easily. Especially not when you have a personality like Jillian does. Showalter had me up until that point, but after the reconciliation scene...the rest was just really hard to enjoy and swallow. That being said, her next book (a paranormal romance) seems really interesting and I'm willing to give her another shot.

What a fun book! I li...

What a fun book! I listened to it at work and had a hard time not laughing out loud!
